By bne IntelliNews April 20, 2010
The European Commission has accepted the new national allocation plan (NAP) submitted by Poland for distributing carbon dioxide (CO2) emission allowances for the 2008-2012 trading period of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), the EC has announced. Climate action commissioner Connie Hedegaard hailed Poland 's decision to rework the plan stressing that the submitted version was "consistent with the methodology used for all other member states. In 2007, the Commission decided that certain aspects of the Polish National Allocation Plan (NAP) were not compatible with the EU ETS Directive. Poland sued the decision, but lost the case. The current plan maintains the total amount of allowances at 208.5 Mt per year, i.e. by 26.7% less than originally applied by Poland . tom
